Voices of the South Side (VoSS) and StarHealth have teamed up to create an exciting program called UpStart. It’s for people who may be feeling isolated or worried about their mental health and offers support, courses and activities. There will be a variety of opportunities for people to explore their creativity, speaking and leadership skills through free courses. People are also supported in achieving their individual goals such as volunteer work, employment, training, health and connecting to their local community.
A new ‘Speaking Out’ Course starts late September at a South Melbourne venue on a Thursday, 11 am to 1.30 pm. This is a 2 hour session over 10 weeks and offered to a small group.
